What's new with the University Libraries


   

BrowZine


Aug. 21, 2014 – There's been a lot of changes since the end of the spring 2014 semester:

ILLiad now uses CAS (PID/password) for login

Interlibrary Loan's ILLiad request system now uses the university's Central Authentication Service. Users now login to their ILLiad account using their Virginia Tech PID and password (you will no longer need a separate ILLiad account and password).

BrowZine mobile and tablet app provides notification of newly published journals

BrowZine makes accessing the library's journal subscriptions on your tablet device (iOS, Android, or Kindle Fire) easy. You can add journals to your bookshelf and then get notified when a new issue is published. From that issue's table of contents, you can read and save a PDF of an article. You can also open that PDF in an app that allows annotating it, or you can save the article to a bibliographic manager like Zotero or Mendeley.

Library app shelf organizes mobile apps to ease access to library resources

The library's new app shelf, linked from our mobile website, lists apps and mobile websites for library resources, including full-text databases, journal archives, and utilities like EndNote. From the app shelf, you can install apps for iOS or Android devices, or bookmark frequently used mobile URLs.
